Military families, consider yourself warned. Stay away from West Lee, this has to be the most unsupportive school towards military and their children. They simply don't care here.

This school is very bad. I think it is the worst of all LCS middle schools. I feel like it is unclean and students can do whatever they want in the halls, classrooms, bathrooms and classrooms. The teachers don't care what the students do or say.

I would like to see more parental involvement at this school. This school has a lot of potential. The valuable resources that are available here should be tapped into in order to make the school great.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 North Carolina used End-of-Grade (EOG) tests to assess students in grades 3 through 8 in reading and math, and grades 5 and 8 in science. The EOG is a standards-based test, which means it measures how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of North Carolina. Students must pass the grade 8 EOG test in order to graduate from high school. The goal is for all students to score at or above the proficient level on the tests.
